Actually that was what I was talking about in the post that you quoted. The reason for why the systems with the Intel boards were by far the most trouble free was that I was using the code for the equivalent standard Intel system boards, meaning that those machines should be using the correct Super I/O chips in addition to the chipset itself. At the very least, all of the systems with Intel chipsets plus AMIBIOS fall into this category. I should probably have made a list of those systems though.

You can't just assume that, Super I/O chips varied a lot, even among "similar" boards. :p
Well, just to be sure, I'm going to make a list of Super I/O chips for each machine model and system board anyway, and I'll also try to find pictures of each board just so that I can be sure of what exact chips each board had and categorize it accordingly (I could probably even provide some pictures myself if anyone wants to see them). I already have a couple of pictures of some system boards and I'll try to find more when time permits.

Why couldn't you have just contributed to 86Box? Or PCem? And it isn’t even “ground breaking”, just another useless clone.

Same as 86Box, therefore Windows on the host and pretty much anything that runs on the Pentium or earlier x86 processors as guests.

Now I've tested IBM PS/2 32-bit models. It works with reference diskettes, but not with OS disks (neither DOS, nor AIX).

I can't run version 1.01 at all - it crashes with an illegal instruction error. Evidently you compiled it for some architecture newer than Nehalem (I have Nehalem-based Xeons).

Probably 95 or XP
I’ll have to download it and compare it to PCem and 86-Box. I have a Sandy Bridge Xeon in my PC, so it might work with mine. If it truly runs better, then I’ll use it. Otherwise I’ll stick with PCem and 86-Box.

Do you have a bug tracker arrangement for this? You have a decent measure of them. Additionally, you should impair frameworks that don't work from appearing in the "Framework board" list. Your Compaq Portable III imitating is broken similarly 86box's is. All things considered, it's unusable. Except if you've done some genuine great FPU imitating fixes, I'd expect your PS/2 Model 70-486 is likewise broken (for what it's worth in both PCem and 86box). Should shroud that too.
